It’s hard to describe Genesis Tramaine’s specific style for portraiture but maybe that’s the point of their work. It’s easy to see just from the way it looks how it was created with raw emotion and expression but also deep consideration of what to highlight or draw attention to in that portrait, wear to place the love. A lot of these portraits seem to me to include texture within the portrait each one tells you a story especially with all of her portraiture in fact. Regardless, her portraits are always interesting to gaze at
just to draw out the connection she’s had with these people or possibly the conversation that might have influenced the portrait.
